Three-Bean Salad

Three-Bean Salad

This three-bean salad has far less sugar than typical versions. We opt for a combination of canned and frozen beans (for convenience) along with fresh green beans for their great taste and texture.

Serves 8

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

Step 1

Put a large saucepan of water on to boil. Fill a large bowl half full with ice water and place next to the stove.

Meanwhile, whisk cider vinegar, rice vinegar, sugar, mustard, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl until blended. Add onion and black-eyed peas (or chickpeas); toss to coat.
